NANJING, China, Aug. 27 /PRNewswire-Asia/ -- China Sunergy Co., Ltd. (Nasdaq: CSUN), ("China Sunergy" or the "Company") a specialized solar cell manufacturer based in Nanjing, China, announced today its financial results for the second 新浪财经quarter of 2009.

Second Quarter Financial Results

-- Revenues were US$70.1 million, an 89.5% increase compared to

the first quarter of 2009. Revenues generated from solar cell

sales were US$54.5 million, representing a 58.4% increase

compared to the first quarter of 2009.

-- Gross profit was US$6.8 million for the second quarter, compared

to gross loss of US$8.8 million during the first quarter of 2009.

Accordingly, gross margin was 9.7%, compared to negative 23.7%

during the first quarter of 2009.

-- GAAP net income was US$1.7 million. Adjusted non-GAAP net income

was US$1.2 million, which excludes share-based compensation and

the change in the fair value of foreign currency derivatives. This

compares to non-GAAP net loss of US$13.2 million in the first

quarter of 2009.

-- GAAP net income per ADS was US$0.04 on both basic and diluted basis.

Adjusted non-GAAP net income per ADS was US$0.03 on both basic and

diluted basis, which excludes share-based compensation and the change

in the fair value of foreign currency derivatives, compared to a

non-GAAP net loss of US$0.33 per ADS in the first quarter of 2009.

-- Inventory as of June 30, 2009 was $25.0 million, down from $29.6

million as of March 31, 2009. Inventory write-down was $2.9 million,

compared to $8.0 million in the first quarter of 2009.

-- Operating cash flow in the second quarter was positive US$19.5 million,

compared with positive $7.9 million in the first quarter of 2009.

-- During the second quarter of 2009, China Sunergy continued to conduct

open market repurchases of its 4.75% Convertible Senior Notes due 2013,

repurchasing US$4 million aggregate principal amount of the convertible

notes for a total cash consideration of US$1.8 million. As a result,

China Sunergy realized a net gain of US$2.2 million. As of the end of

the second quarter of 2009, the convertible bond balance was reduced to

US$44 million.

Please refer to "Reconciliation Tables of GAAP to adjusted Non-GAAP Figures" at the end of this press release.

Operational Highlights

-- Shipments in the second quarter amounted to approximately 41.5MW,

representing a 73.6% increase sequentially and an 18.6% increase on a

year-over-year basis, due to more aggressive pricing, successful

efforts to work in a more integrated fashion with existing clients, and

expansion into new markets.

-- Shipments of high efficiency cells (defined as any cells with a

conversion efficiency rate of over 17%) during the second quarter of

2009 amounted to 18.6MW, or 44.8% of total solar cell shipments,

compared with 8.9MW, or 37.2% of total solar cell shipments, during the

first quarter of 2009.

-- The Company further expanded its international business through the

signing of a framework agreement and sales contract with Renergies

Italia S.p.A, a manufacturer of solar modules based in Urbisaglia,

Italy. The Company also entered into a 35MW solar photovoltaic products

framework agreement, and a 5MW solar photovoltaic products sales

contract based on the framework agreement, with Global Service LTM in

Taiwan for a South Korean downstream customer.

-- Over the past quarters, at the request of customers China Sunergy has

begun to supply modules produced with China Sunergy solar cells, under

OEM agreements. While the Company is not producing these modules

internally and there has been limited shipment volume, the Company

expects these OEM module agreements to become accretive to gross margin

levels as contract volumes increase.

Commenting on the results, Dr. Allen Wang, CEO of China Sunergy, said:

"After two quarters of unfavorable economic conditions, we are pleased that the decisive action we took earlier in the year has led to second quarter results which meet or exceed our expectations. We have experienced steady monthly progress among operational and financial level improvements, due to our effective financial and inventory management, a focus on developing existing and new market opportunities and continued dedication to our leading solar technologies. We returned to profitability during the quarter and will continue to work diligently to position ourselves for profitable growth within a still challenging marketplace."

Second Quarter 2009 Financial Review

Revenues and Shipment

During the second quarter of 2009, revenues increased 89.5% sequentially to US$70.1 million. Sales from solar cells, modules, cells processed under OEM arrangements and other sales accounted for 77.7%, 6.3%, 0.9% and 15.1% of total revenues, respectively. Other sales were mainly revenue on polysilicon sales through buy-sell arrangements.

Shipments, including 1.4 MW of solar cells processed under OEM arrangements, amounted to approximately 41.5 MW, representing respectively the 18.6% and 73.6% increase compared with the second quarter of 2008, and the first quarter of 2009

The percentage of solar cell sales in overseas markets was 41.0% of total solar cell sales in the second quarter of 2009 compared to 39.5% and 24.2% in the second quarter of 2008 and the first quarter of 2009, respectively.

ASP, Gross Profit/Loss & Gross Margins

Blended average selling price (ASP) for the second quarter of 2009 declined from US$1.64 per watt in the previous quarter to US$1.44 per watt. The blended ASP for the second quarter of 2008 was US$3.37.

Gross profit for the quarter was US$6.8 million, which led to a blended gross margin of 9.7%, compared to negative 23.7% in the previous quarter, and 10.4% in the second quarter of 2008 despite the decline in ASP in the second quarter. The increase in gross margin from the first quarter of 2009 was primarily due to significantly reduced wafer cost and lower non-wafer production cost in the second quarter of 2009, balancing the continued decline in ASP.

Wafer Costs

In the second quarter of 2009, blended wafer cost, a part of production costs, declined to US$0.96 per watt compared to US$1.61 per watt in the first quarter of 2009. As the higher cost inventory at the end of 2008 was fully consumed, the Company's procurement flexibility allowed for the continued purchase of more raw materials on the spot market, reducing blended wafer cost.

Wafer cost continued to decline as a percentage due to lower wafer pricing in the second quarter. Wafer cost per watt as a percentage of total production costs per watt declined from 81.4% in the first quarter of 2009 to 75.2% in the second quarter of 2009.

Other production costs, or conversion costs, for the quarter were US$0.31 per watt, compared with $0.37 per watt in the first quarter of 2009, and $0.27 in the second quarter of 2008. The decline from the first quarter was largely due to greater utilization and effective non-wafer cost controls.

SG&A, Operating Profit/Loss and Net Income/Loss

SG&A expenses in the second quarter of 2009 were US$3.6 million, compared to US$5.1 million in the second quarter of 2008 and US$6.1 million in the last quarter. G&A expenses in the first quarter included US$1.4 million of bad debt provision for account receivables, while we reversed US$0.4 million of provision in the second quarter.

Income from operations was US$1.7 million for the second quarter, compared to operating loss of US$16.4 million for the first quarter of 2009. Operating income for the second quarter of 2008 was US$6.0 million.

Interest expense for the second quarter 2009 was US$1.9 million, compared to US$1.7 million for the second quarter of 2008 and US$1.4 million for the first quarter of 2009, respectively. The higher interest expense in the second quarter of 2009 was mainly due to the added US$0.3 million convertible bonds amortization cost as a result of the repurchase of the convertible bonds.

Net other income in the second quarter of 2009 was US$3.0 million, compared to net other loss US$0.7 million for the first quarter of 2009. Net other income in the second quarter included a gain of US$2.2 million on the repurchase of the convertible bonds and a US$0.8 million foreign exchange gain.

In the second quarter, GAAP net profit was US$1.7 million, an improvement sequentially compared to a GAAP net loss of US$15.9 million in the first quarter of 2009. GAAP net income was US $3.1 million in the second quarter of 2008.

Non-GAAP net profit was US$1.2 million in the second quarter of 2009, compared to a Non-GAAP net loss of US$13.2 million in the first quarter of 2009, and a Non-GAAP net income of US$4.0 million in the second quarter of 2008. Non-GAAP figures exclude share-based compensation and the change in the fair value of foreign currency derivatives.

The non-GAAP measures are described and reconciled to the corresponding GAAP measures in the section below titled "Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures."

Liquidity, Cash Flow and Capital Expenditure

As of June 30, 2009, the Company had cash and cash equivalents of US$89.8 million. Net operating cash inflow for the second quarter was US$19.5 million, as the Company maintained a cautious cash flow management policy and purchased a lower amount of wafer during the second quarter. Depreciation and amortization was US$2.5 million and capital expenditures were US$3.9 million, largely involving remaining payments for equipment relating to the Company's selective emitter cell production lines.

Commenting on the financial results, Mr. Shiliang Guo, acting CFO of China Sunergy, said:

"Given our lower operational cost structure, the second quarter marked a return to profitability for China Sunergy. During the quarter we also took steps to ensure the stability of our company, such as working to reduce the risk of our accounts receivables, conducting a repurchase of convertible bonds at a reasonable price and continuing to hedge a portion of our forecasted sales to limit our exposure to currency fluctuations. As we look into the third quarter, although we expect strong growth we also believe that the credit environment for solar products has not recovered at the rates we anticipated earlier in the year. While we continue to execute on the strategies we implemented at the beginning of the year, we are becoming more conservative regarding the realities of our demand forecast, shipment credit policies and pricing as we move into the coming quarters."

Third Quarter and Full Year Outlook

Given recent visibility into the third quarter, China Sunergy now believes that while the solar market will continue to recover, it will do so at a more moderate rate than previously anticipated.

The Company anticipates shipment growth to remain strong, with third quarter shipments of 48MW - 55MW. However, given the pricing trends and strong pricing competition being seen for the third quarter, the Company expects third quarter gross margins will be flat from the second quarter of 2009. These margin levels have been impacted by a lower than expected ASP and higher conversion costs during the third quarter, due to lower utilization rates.

The Company remains confident in its ability to achieve shipments within the previously announced full year guidance range of 150 MW to 200 MW. However, due to the more conservative view of the credit environment recovery, it anticipates shipments towards the lower end of the previously announced range for the full year of 2009.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement China Sunergy's consolidated financial results presented in accordance with GAAP, China Sunergy uses the following measures defined as non-GAAP financial measures by the SEC: net income excluding share-based compensation and change in fair value of foreign currency derivative loss, and basic and diluted net income per ADS excluding share-based compensation and change in fair value of foreign currency derivative loss. The presentation of these non-GAAP financial measures is not intended to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the financial information prepared and presented in accordance with GAAP. For more information on these non-GAAP financial measures, please see the tables captioned "Reconciliations of

non-GAAP financial measures to the nearest comparable GAAP measures" set forth at the end of this release. China Sunergy believes that these non-GAAP financial measures provide meaningful supplemental information regarding its performance by excluding certain expenses and expenditures that may not be indicative of its operating performance from a cash perspective. The Company believes that both management and investors benefit from referring to these non-GAAP financial measures in assessing the Company's performance and when planning and forecasting future periods. The Company expects to provide net income on a non-GAAP basis using a consistent method on a quarterly basis going forward. A limitation of using non-GAAP net income excluding share-based compensation and change in fair value of foreign currency derivative loss, and basic and diluted net income per ADS excluding share-based compensation and change in fair value of foreign currency derivative loss is that these

non-GAAP measures exclude the share-based compensation and change in fair value of foreign currency derivative loss that have been and will continue to be for the foreseeable future a significant recurring expense in the business. Management compensates for these limitations by providing specific information regarding the GAAP amounts excluded from each non-GAAP measure. Please refer to "Reconciliation of non-GAAP financial measures to the nearest comparable GAAP measures" set forth at the end of this press release.
